The Democrats cooked up this whole phony "war on women"

The Post today endorses the candidacy of Wendy Long, a lawyer, former congressional aide and longtime conservative activist, for the GOP nod. She has a long record of involvement on the national level and on national issues. Long, as she herself notes, is better positioned to fight "this whole phony war-on-women thing that the Democrats are cooking up."

Would never attend a same-sex marriage ceremony

At the Republican debate sponsored by Time Warner Cable's Capital Tonight Show and NY1, Wendy Long said she doesn't feel 'that there are any conservative activists on the current Supreme Court'. She also said she would never attend a same-sex marriage ceremony, despite being a staunch 'women's rights activist'.

Firefighters don't deserve to be victims of racial quotas

Wendy E. Long, counsel to the conservative Judicial Confirmation Network, issued a statement saying that the firefighters "who protect the public safety and worked hard for their promotions did not deserve to become victims of racial quotas.''

Casting the Ricci decision as a repudiation of [Supreme Court Justice] Sotomayor, Long added: "Usually, poor performance in any profession is not rewarded with the highest job offer in the entire profession."
